    you could try some toothpaste, not the gel kind but the old fashion kind and try to buff it out.

    Put a case on it and forget about it.

    My Max came out of the box and right into a case and screen protector.
    I dropped it twice so far zero scratches.

    If I dropped a phablet-sized iPhone with front and rear glass on to tile and only got scuffs, I'd consider myself lucky.

    the Xs MAX is not designed to be a fall resistant iPhone. If it was Apple would brag about it. The Xs Max is glass and a bit too top heavy which doesn’t bode well in a fall
    Best solution is to get a good case and screen protector
    While I wouldn’t call it delicate it’s certainly breakable

    I see so,e people only use thier cases intermittently. The 3 different cases I had on my 6S Plus were so tight to get on or off I was honestly afraid of bending the phone.

    My Max is definitely in a case, Zizo Bolt. Has just the right amount of grip but not bulky like the Otterbox Defender(?) brick. Slightly raised front to protect face down screen and cut-out on back for those that like to advertise what they use. It also fits nice and snug, but not so tight you can’t get it off without snapping the glass. Also have screen protector on front but the best wasn’t available day after I got it and didn’t want to wait. May change it now that the better one is available.
    However, it is just so beautiful naked, I was tempted to try it without.

    As an XS Max owner, I would have to disagree, I think the Max is incredibly well-balanced from top to bottom. And I say this being something that I would actually notice any type of Imbalance. Actually, I would say one of the most understated Tendencies about the Max, is how well balanced it feels in the hand and you would think it would be ‘overly heavy’ by looking at it, but actually it isn’t because of the weight distribution.

    Even reading throughout this forum, others have commented on this, which I think takes away from some of the intimidation of such a large iPhone.

    Put it in a case and get Apple care. It’s the most expensive phone of the entire line and it seems to be the most fragile.

    Same here. I had a screen protector and a case from the beginning. I’ve dropped my Xs Max several times already and it’s still in as new condition.

    I agree it’s not top heavy. However I disagree that it’s not heavy. It’s the heaviest phone I’ve owned so far and for me much more prone to be dropped and in fact I’ve dropped it several times. Now I’m not clumsy and I’ve never had that problem before I got my X and now Xs Max.

    ewww Id totally sell that thing. I mean who would want to look at the tini tiny scuffs on the frame. I hope your friends dont make fun of you for wanting to get a new phone for that.
    Really though I hope you're kidding if you think you should sell that phone and buy a new one for that reason.
    I need a nap

    You kid...but on my Iphone 7 i used Sharpies to cover up those kind of small chips/scratches and did a pretty good job of hiding them. Eventually the marker wears off and you have to reapply but works surprisingly well
